Sorry they aren't too great, but I'm still in a back brace with weight/lifting/moving restrictions :ohno:
They are the less-bad pics though :p

Aww, you should get into it some more! You know the guy who does tours of Neps over yonder will do a bird tour too right? Look here --> http://www.wildborneo.com.my/trips.html

Here's some more of that bird hopping around :p

Liz: thanks!

mato: I have no idea. I got some other blurry pics that um... I think one of these is actually a hornbill and I don't think the one you're asking about is, but I know nothing about birds. God these pics are awful. I wish I could use my back already :crap::

Should you drop by San Diego, there are at least three walk-in aviaries (including a hummingbird one) and tons of huge cages filled with birds all over the place from all over the place (arctic, australia, bunch of eagles, etc.). I did it no justice today.
